Paul Brown Stadium is gearing up for Thursday night's free-and-open-to-the-public Bengals Pep Rally that features some of Cincinnati's most explosive operations. During the event where gates open at 7 p.m., the NFL's  sixth-ranked defense and an offense featuring two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green and first-round pick Tyler Eifert headline the introductions of the players by the Bengals radio team of Dan Hoard and Dave Lapham. The night closes with a fireworks display by Queen City Pyro.

The roster of alumni set to attend ranges from all-time leading passer Ken Anderson to the club's most versatile linebacker ever in Brian Simmons. The alumni is on hand to sign autographs while the Rusty Griswolds perform at 7:45 to set up the 8:45 p.m. rally. Head coach Marvin Lewis also plans to address the crowd. The Bengals 2012 highlights video from NFL Films starts playing on the scoreboards at 7 p.m.  

Here's the current list of alumni that is expected, but there could be more commitments:

Ken Anderson, Louis Breeden, James Brooks, Barney Bussey, Glenn Bujnoch, Ron Carpenter, Marvin Cobb, Brad Cousino, Larry Ely, M.L. Harris, Ira Hillary, Robert Jackson, Stanford Jennings, Joe Kelly, Dave Lapham, Mike Martin, Tim McGee, Max Montoya, Rick Razzano, Lamar Rogers, Keith Rucker, Brian Simmons, John Simmons, John Stofa, David Verser, Kevin Walker, Joe Walter.
